13b Cosmo, Upgrade or sell, decision time
« on: September 01, 2008, 07:04:56 PM »
Hi all, been thinking about the 13b Cosmo, have had little chance to drive it (work in the military) as I am at the opposite end of the country. Seems a shame for it to sit and do nothing but at the same time I can\'t help thinking that it would look the bees knees with a set of MS02\'s and a set of the coilovers that have recently become available through MRP.
 
Decision time, Keep or Sell?
 
Thanks for your thoughts

I think it would all comes down to what think it\'s worth.

Deciding to sell is one thing - getting what you think it\'s worth could well be another.

I was hoping for between £1500 - £2000 but I am aware of the trouble you had selling your 20b so who knows...

As John said getting a good price can be a issue. Also you have a known car if you got another at a later date what would you be getting? Another option is to SORN the car until your based closer. It really does depend on your future plans.

It appears, from the response to trying to sell my 20b, that I want more than ppl think it\'s worth -  so I\'ll probably keep it.

I think you should get that for yours, assuming it looks good.

Not a sellers market for anything atm - If you do sell you need to be prepared to wait months for the right buyer to come along.

Do you have any pics?

What is the mileage?  What is the actual spec of the 13B-RE cosmo?  Are they twins?

(Saves me having to look it up)

Arrgggh. Would you be interested in a deal involving an Evo II?

Hi Brett the spec is simialr to the 13b REW found in the FD, only the uim and lim are of a larger bore allowing gases to flow more rapidly, the 13b RE in development terms, is sort of between the 13b turbo from the FC and the REW in the FD. There is a lot more info on www.dmrh.au.com (thats from memory, if it doesnt work try searching for dmrh on the forum).
 
Off the top of my head its done the equivalent of 40Kish miles (60k kms). Its an auto too. Some people find it a relaxing alternative to the rampant FD.
 
Sorry, would not be interested in a deal with the evo II, maybe if I was in that area of the country I would be, but it would not get any more use than the cosmo.
 
Thanks all

No worries, good luck with the sale. I need another car like I need a hole in the head so I think I better not start thinking about just waving cash :).
